Bio and Links
Bio Photo I'm a native of Longmont, CO. I'm been interested in genealogy for almost 50 years but I did take time off to raise a family. Research is much easier now then it was 30 years ago. The Denver Library and Federal Archives are not far away and that has been a help.

When I started taking photos my husband didn't come but after a visit to a cemetery that was on a one lane road on the side of a mountain he was hooked. The markers were very old and very interesting, so now he willing walks around a cemetery with me as we locate the markers that were requested. He trims the grass and pulls the weeds around the markers to be sure I get a good photo. We also stop and visit relatives and friends and look at interesting markers. The two remarks on markers I have really liked are "This is the only stone she left unturned." and "I told you I was sick."

You have my permission to use headstone photos that I have posted for your genealogy record.

Thank you so much for transferring my great-grandparents to me. I really appreciate you creating memorials for them and most especially for visiting their gravesite in the cold of winter to add that wonderful photo of their marker. You're the greatest! Regards, Valerie

RE: Elisha Sinkhorn
No, I am not related. I was taking some volunteer photos at Dearborn Community Cemetery. There was a request for a photo of Abner Sinkhorn's headstone. He does not have a headstone, but I did find a copy of his death certificate and put with his Memorial.
Best regards,
